Standard Tim e, Monday, January 19, 1970. T enders will not be received a t the Treasury D epartm ent, Washington.
Each tender m ust be for an even m ultiple of $1,000, and in the case of com petitive tenders the price offered fnust be expressed on

on the printed forms and forwarded in the special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on
application therefor.
Banking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of customers provided the names of the customers are
set forth in such tenders. O thers than banking institutions will not be perm itted to subm it tenders except for their own account.
Tenders will be received w ithout deposit from incorporated banks and trust companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. T enders from others m ust be accompanied by paym ent of 2 percent of the face am ount of
T reasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of paym ent by an incorporated bank or

Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t th e Federal Reserve Banks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be made by the T reasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Only those
subm itting com petitive tenders will be advised of the acceptance or rejection thereof. T he Secretary of the Treasury expressly
reserves the right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Sub­
ject to these reservations, noncom petitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less w ithout stated price from any one bidder will

ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of new bills.
T he income derived from Treasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of T reasury bills does not have any special treatm ent,
as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, bu t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of the U nited States, or by any local taxing authority. F or purposes of taxation the am ount of discount
at which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. U nder Sections 454 (b ) and
1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con­
sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as
capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of T reasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, w hether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during the taxable year for which the
return is made, as ordinary gain or loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe the term s of the Treasury bills and
govern the conditions of their issue. Copies of the circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.

In accordance with the above announcement, tenders will be received a t this bank and its branches at El Paso,
°uston and San Antonio up to twelve-thirty p.m., Central Standard Time, Monday, January 19, 1970. Tenders m ay
be entered by telephone.
Yours very truly,
P. E. Coldwell
President
